you still around? i took two of those 5 hour energy things and i think i’m burned out.. no crash my a$$.
i’m starting to come to peace with the test. i know what i know and i can only hope it is enough to pass… how’s your head going into this?
Nice to see you around still. Will you be posting up until the end?
I’ve never stalked you at javarama, but I’m following your ups and downs here. I just downed a Red Bull but I’ll be wrapping up soon.
I’m starting to feel more at ease with whatever comes on Saturday. I give myself a 60%/40% of pulling through. Prudence?
it’s only little past 8pm but i’m falling asleep. i don’t think i should take my 3rd “5hr energy” for today..
most of the regulars have signed out.. i’ll probably stick my head in here and there… i’m just reading the secret sauce now. will do more ethics and gips tomorrow..
let’s pass this thing. i don’t know how much more i can learn in the last day.
I’m feeling good… relatively speaking… I always feel like sh!t going into these things, but then I get a rush of adrenaline and super focus when I get to the exam. Hopefully that happens again.
What are you doing tomorrow? I think I’m just going to make sure I know all the formulas, and do one last scan through the curriculum. I just want look everything over to keep it fresh and in the front of my memory.
I will be unbelievably relieved once this thing is over… I can’t take much more… Just 1.5 more days…
I hear ya.. just ethics and gips for me tomorrow too. And my index cards.
Reviewing some IPS things here and there now, but I’m pretty relaxed about giving it my best on these and moving along to the “tangibles” of the exam.
yup. formulas, gips, ethics.. i think it’s getting too late to learn stuff i don’t already get.. and i feel like i have a good enough grasp to pass this thing if i show up on saturday. you are going to absolutely kill this thing mcleod.
and you too, sterling. i know you downplay it, but i think you know you can pass this thing. just keep pushing. i’m the same way.
btw, are these late posts for real? or a joke?
I like how we hi-jacked this tread and nobody even mentioned optimization.
I’m just out of gas. Have to preserve every ounce of remaining energy for myself. Sorry OP.
(Optimization is kind of like a factor model used to get the same exposures as the index. Less tracking error than stratified sampling. …etc)
Yes, and optimization produces more stable allocations. Takes into account covariances of factors.
But it is funny seeing some of these posts. Kind of makes you feel, more prepared?
cfasf, I KNOW you’ll be good to pass this thing. Thanks for your best wishes. I’ll keep working it.
McLeod, I hope to join you on the other side as well. I know both of you will be over that finish line in August.
I just took the mock 2009 and got a 58%. Makes me feel good. NOT
have to go for a walk fight the demons.
